Our new pet rock.
You will need:
- A rock
Seriously? You are actually reading the directions for this project? Well, OK, for those of you who like to have things spelled out for you...
- Go for a walk and look for a nice size rock.
- Pick up rock; take it home.
- Wash off any dirt. Let dry
- Paint rock. Let dry.
Easy, easy, easy. Our rock sits on Elliott's bookshelf now, but for weeks after it was made, it went EVERYWHERE with us.
We walked for quite a while and turned our noses up at several rocks before finding "the one". I think that was part of the reason Elliott took such ownership of his rock.
You'd be surprised at how well this project goes over with kids.
